  1. How do CabParts boxes assemble?
    CabParts offers two methods of assembly:
    • Confirmat screws with factory inserted 8mm hardwood dowels for alignment, no glue required. Confirmat screws provided at no additional cost.
    • 8mm x 30mm hardwood dowels, factory inserted, final glue joint by the customer. Clamping time is about 20 – 30 minutes depending upon humidity.
       
  2. Will CabParts cut to my size requirements?

When assembled according to CabParts specifications and properly installed per AWI specification our cabinet boxes meet or exceed AWI Custom Grade, using either construction method.
     

Ordering, Shipping & Freight

  1. How do I order from CabParts?
    CabParts prefers the use of our Order Form filled out, either in paper or digitally as a fill able PDF. Please fill the form out (save a copy if PDF) and mail, fax or email the order to CabParts. The PDF Order Form is available as a download from this website, or call and request one via email. We are happy to supply paper Order Forms as well. We can also work from an Excel-type spreadsheet, or a Word-type document. If you are using a design program such as KCD, or Cabinet Vision, you should be able to print a cabinet list from your software to send to CabParts. At the very minimum we need quantity, material, edgeband type, size and configuration of each box or the closet components. CabParts will always contact you with any questions. Sorry – no phone orders.
     
  2. What are your business terms?
    A 50% deposit is required at time of order confirmation with the balance due prior to shipping. You may also apply for an open account with terms of Net 30.

  5. Is CabParts catalog available online?
    Yes, it is available as a download free of charge. It is exactly the same catalog as the paper version, but in PDF format. The PDF file requires the current version of Adobe Reader.

    No minimum order size.
     
  7. Can I get a large order shipped in phases?
    Yes, large orders are frequently phased for shipment. There may be additional charges for extra pallets or organization of parts, etc.
     
  8. Will CabParts ship my order to a job site?
    Yes, the shipping instructions must be very clear on the Order. If an Order is shipped "freight charges collect", you must make arrangements to pay the delivery driver at the job site. Please refer to the "SHIPPING" page on this website.
     
  9. What can I expect to pay for shipping?
    CabParts earns very high discounts on outbound LTL freight. Shipping costs typically adds 25% -30% to the cost of an order. Please see the "SHIPPING" page on this website.
     
  10. Which LTL freight companies does CabParts use?
    CabParts uses these national carriers: Old Dominion, Estes Express, XPO Logistics, FedEx Freight, USF Reddaway, USF Holland, New Penn and Roadway. In Canada we also use Manitoulin. For small orders of 150 pounds, or less, we use FedEx Ground. Customers may "will call" at the factory or arrange for their carrier of choice to pick up and deliver. Please see the "SHIPPING" page on this website.
     
  11. Do you package cabinet boxes in complete units?
    No, since the components are shipped flat, unassembled, it would add greatly to the cost of production and delivery to sort and package individually. Also, assembled boxes ship at a much higher freight rate.
     
  12. How will I be able to identify loose components for assembly?
    Every part has a removable label affixed to it that identifies it by cabinet type, part name and its item number from the order. As you unpack a pallet, organize like item numbers together. When all is unpacked each case will have all of its requisite parts ready for assembly.
     
  13. What is your lead time?
    Please check with CabParts for current production lead time. Special ordered materials may add to the turn around time. Shipping time will add 2 – 6 working days to production lead time.
